Olivia’s pretty pink ice cream and flower first birthday

Haven’t shared any pictures for ages! So many things were going on since our little girl was born I couldn’t find the time anymore. But for sure the best thing that happened to me this year (actually in my whole life) is she making part of it. She turned one-year-old last month and in order to celebrate this little miracle I wanted to eat some ice cream and some cake. But as a foodlover with a weakness for pink , I ended up having too pink and too much ice cream- cake. Lol. We snapped some (much) of it in the morning of her birthday bash

10 x Valentine crafts

Valentine Collage

Since my brother was born on Valentine’s day, we normally celebrate his birthday that day but since he will be in London this year I have to think about something else to do. I won’t expect my hubby to organize anything because unfortunately, he isn’t much of a romanticist. Although I am not a very romantic person either, I want to do or make at least something in order to celebrate our happy eight year romance. Last year I made some DIY Valentine cards but I am not sure yet what to make this year. I’ve rounded up a few Valentine craft projects I love:

1. These DIY Bud Vases to put in my roses (via Britt + Co).

Besides a bunch of flower garlands, I was planning to make a small flower wall but found out that the venue didn’t allow me to stick anything on the wall:(. Eventually I made small flower cardboard instead to still have some of a flower backdrop. But I still have all the paper flowers, which I am gonna reuse to decorate the wall of my future home. It’s been a while, but here the result:

New Years Eve

My Christmas was lovely as always. Since we celebrated it with just the two of us in New York City, it was extra nice to celeberate it with family three days in a row this year. Santa has been good to me and I was indulged with food and presents. I did some good shopping too was happy to see the excitement on the faces of my parents and cousins when unwrapping all the stuff I bought them. 

Anyhow, the holiday cheeriness isn’t over yet because New Year’s Eve is comming up. Continue Reading →
